Random Friday Morning Thoughts

  • I'm still not sure why the Cotton Bowl is being played today instead of yesterday.
  • I didn't leave the house yesterday. Very odd for me.
  • 2008 was the second warmest year since the National Weather Service began keeping records in 1899.
  • Those that laugh about global warming will always come out of the woodwork when we have an abnormally cool day.
  • Let's put a TV reporter in a crowd of drunks on New Year's Ever. Yeah, that's a good idea. (Wait for the hot blonde to appear about halfway through.)
  • I stayed home on New Year's Eve. Enjoyed it more than I thought I would.
  • The girl on the left in the pic above looks like a girl I went to high school with.
  • When I see things like the Montague Jail scandal (below), it drives me nuts. I have the cell phone number of at least 10 people that know exactly what is going on but there's no way they would tell me.
  • The Pour House in downtown Fort Worth is shutting down. I like the Pour House.
  • I was there once when a drunk girl ask me to dance (she had to be drunk.) I learned later that she had been doing that all night "because she's trying to make her boyfriend jealous."
  • I may grow my goatee back out.
  • I got the taco plate at Rosa's Cafe to go the other day and it lasted me dinner then the following lunch and then the following dinner. And to think most people eat that in one meal.
  • Number of arrests for DWI that the Fort Worth Police made on New Year's Eve: 10
  • Number of calls received by Fort Worth PD for random gunfire on the same night: 257
  • What would have been ironic: A drunk driver hit by a stray bullet falling from the sky.
  • Bad news for Florida Gator fans: QB Tim Tebow has apparently decided to transfer to Cincinnati. And play right tackle. And convert to Islam. Either that, or the graphics department at Fox is a mess.
  • If someone show me a baby picture, I have no idea what to say other than he or she, "is so cute!" I mean, the kid could look like the Elephant Man and I'd still say that.
  • Oh, my. I was watching CNN's coverage of Times Square on Wednesday night and was mildly entertained by Kathy Griffin and Anderson Cooper. But I wasn't watching when she said this shocking (and I do mean shocking) thing.
  • Linday Lohan is still a Hey, Now. But, as I saw the other day for the first time, she sure was an ugly little kid in The Parent Trap.

Did you hear about the first baby of the new year in Dallas? Apparently, the mom is a 15-year old Mexican (imagine her being Mexican!)? The father is a 20-year old and they are living with her mother. A lot of people are wondering why police are not filing Statuatory Rape charges against the father.

What's saddest is that these flat-earthers actually believe that a cold day disproves "global warming". But I guess that's better for one's peace of mind than actually studying the problem ... because the truth is pretty disturbing.

A taco plate lasted you 3 meals? You eat like a girl. Just sayin.

This picture is offensive and not cute! Stupid girls who posed for this one should be ashamed.

So 8:34, when someone doesn't agree with you about the global warming myth you resort to name calling. You fit in well with the liberal left. Happy New Year everyone!

Barry, never say a baby is cute out of politeness (especially if it's a baby who isn't particularly cute). If you ever find yourself if that situation, you can do like my mom does and say something like, "What a sweet baby!" I always know when my mom is trying to be nice to someone's baby because she never says one is cute if it isn't. It's always the above or "How precious!"

Maybe the picture is not cute, but certainly HOT!

I'm one of those conservatives who laughs at global warming, not because I don't believe in climate change (I know about ice ages), but because I think it is arrogant to believe man can affect it. We should go along for the ride and enjoy the warm weather. Our great-great-grandchildren will probably catch the climate cycle on the downswing and wear coats late in the Spring.

Pour House is relocating near Montgomery Plaza. Won't be the same...

I just wonder how well the girl on the left can wiggle her toes.

When shown a picture of a new baby, I have been known to say, "Wow! That baby is way too cute to be 'Bob's' are you sure he is the father?" People who know me laugh, people who do not know me look uncomfortable and make me laugh.

Come on..Give us a hint as to which girl from High School you are talking about!

What's funny is the global warming alarmists who don't have enough warm days to justify their claims, so they have to resort to the catch-all phrase "climate change."

Lots of questions to your claim, Mr. Green.
1) Where did you get the idea that "2008 was the second warmest on record"?
2) Even if it was, what does that mean to us? Sun spot activity?
3) If the earth is warming, who is to say we're not returning to the optimum temperature for life? No one can define what the "ideal" temperature should be.
4) If manmade global warming is as real as they say (Al Gore said the debate is over,) why do global warming alarminsts have so many arguments that have been disproved? (e.g. the "hockey stick" graph which ignores the Little Ice Age)

If global warming alarmists have their way, we won't even be allowed to ask these questions.

That was actually a pretty funny thing by Kathy Griffin. I'm surprised it's the only shocking remark during the broadcast.

Just think how much water will be saved if turf is installed in Eagle Stadium.

Just another valid point.

It says on your profile that you want to participate in a 'figure' competition. Just judging your words, I think you would be a shoe in for Mrs. Congeniality. But then I got a look at you. UNFORTUNATELY, the only thing you would win would be an Oompa Loompa look a like competition at Comic-Con.

On the subject of global warming, Ian Stewart (a geologist) states "It's not the earth that needs saving, it's mankind. The earth will adapt and be around for a couple billion more years"

They kind of remind me of those good catholic school girls, like from Ursiline Academy. OK maybe not!

I think the girl on the left has a little Kentucky leg hound in her Barry. If you are wearing short pants, you may want to let her just finish if you know what I mean.

Whoa, Kingfish.....Oompa Loompa look a like competition...!

I did laugh a lot and then thought to myself that some things are better left unsaid, and that goes for the both of ya.

Who does the girl on the left remind you of that went to BHS?

I wonder if all the people that were stranded in airports all over the country during Christmas would think that 2008 was the warmest year on record.

Global warming would be a real cute theory if there were ANY evidence supporting it.
